Here I go again going multiple weeks without blogging, oh gosh life doesn't leave me much time for anything these days, but on the bright side I am hoping Christmas break will give me more time to do so. SO, I have SO SO much to say, I am keeping it SIMPLE with a little jot list of all I have forgotten to insert:
-I took a little(she's the bomb and I can't wait to show pics)
-the boy is awesome and loving every minute of Clemson while my closet gets more purple and orange by the day, not to mention he is keeping me grounded through all my craziness :)
-I got chosen to be Public Relations Vice President for my Sorority ( Stoked!)
-My dad is headed to the capitol, the state capitol that is...the political candidate he works for got elected to be the next Governor (if you don't know already, I love politics aka RED)
MOREEE SOOON!!! SO much more!

This is Falls Park , it is a little quaint park in the center of town, you can miss it if you don't look closely. I have always loved the south and this to me was the epitome of all things southern. My mother and I recently ventured back to Greenville for the day during my fall break, which was wonderful as well. What can I say it took one glance and my heart was in love....
I also don't think I have shared my love for philanthropy, basically it is the best. I know this sounds cheesy, but it is a huge part of the reason I wanted to be Greek. Alpha Xi Delta's philanthropy is Autism Speaks, which is such a great organization to pair with. My chapter is currently planning one of our biggest fundraisers we do each year, titled "Fuzzie Football" It is basically a flag football tournament where teams from all around campus come and participate, Greek and non Greeks alike. If you are wondering where the fuzzie comes in our AXID mascot is the teddy bear. Anyways, I am super excited about the tournament and have been working non-stop as Philanthropy Chair to make sure we get plenty of sponsors, have t-shirts made, get plenty of teams to play and entertainment for spectators. I am in love with this position and I hope everything turns our successfully so we can raise money for such a great cause.

Along with homecoming and Luke Bryan, I just happened to turn 20 during the last week as well, no big deal or anything...20 feels different not on the outside, but definitely on the inside. I feel like I hold more responsibility, I truly AM an adult now and life just topped another level, but in addition to that I have had the most amazing 20 years a girl could ask for filled with innumerable blessings. We have and annual tradition of going to the Cheesecake Factory for my birthday, e and my girlfriends, and this year my sweet Mom came and joined us! Which was awesome!!!i completed my birthday week with a visit with my boy and his family. We went to the Miami v. Clemson game, which was a blast but it tool me four hours to get there thanks to traffic and the silly sun decided to burn one half of my body(real cute!) but other than that he gave some really awesome gifts, purple and orange of course, but nonetheless it was great to see him. I am looking forward to the 20 and hope they are just as amazing as the last 20 have been.
My other new love is Tervis Tumblers. Yes, I know I am a bit late on that trend and I only own two at the moment, but they are the greatest thing since sliced bread! If you don't own one you should...They keep the coldest thing COLD and the hottest things HOT!
My initial one(mine is the pink A) And of course it wouldn't be complete without my Clemson one(in honor of the Clemson boy)
This post has run way to long, but I am hoping to somehow to revise this whole blog and get it back to the way it used to be! Have a great week!
oh and p.s. if you like to keep up with me and blogging isn't as constant, I am also a twitter fanatic... so follow me @ashtonbee.

After almost 15 days, I am back in blogging action. I do apologize for my extended absence,but life has been nothing short of crazy these past few weeks. Between soroity recruitment and school and the bf, oh and a lil sleep in between life has been non-stop.
I am bursting at the seems to tell you all about recruitment, we got 25 new precious babies and absolutely adore each of them.One of our new members is my roomie, TMoss and I couldn't be more stoked, we shared a little tear fest when she ran to the sorority house. I can't wait to post tons of pictures!!! Everything went smoothly and our membership council did an excellent job.
In other news, I will be attending my first ever ACC football game this weekend and I am so excited about it... I already have my outfit picked out(Talk about getting ahead of the game), but the precious bf surprised me with the cutest dress for game day and I cannot wait to wear it.
Well I am off to living my crazy life, but I promise pictures soon and to try to update more...

One update I did want to post was about my best friend's mother I was recently telling you all about. Her surgery went really well and it turned out what they took out from her lung was scar tissue and she is CANCER FREE!!!! So that is wonderful to hear.
Well I am off to class again, I am going to try to be a more faithful blogger.....
Thursday, August 5, 2010
So, in light of all the great news I have to share, there is a little bit of sad too. Suzanne aka the bestie, who is on the right, and her Mother DC in the middle all shared a recent trip to St. George Island. Over the last 3 and a half years her mom has had two bouts with Cancer. DC is such a fighter and an inspiration to us all, she is a great mother, friend, and mentor. This past week we received the news that her Cancer has returned... However we are all praying and she will fight through AGAIN! So, please be a prayer warrior for this family.. and I will be sure to update you on progress.

I also want a twitter icon, so you all can follow me, because I am an obsessed Tweeter... I am even considering a new background.
Why all this change, I feel like I am getting a fresh start, yes sadly summer is ending, but wow has it been a changing summer for me. I have grown up a good bit, worked on the priorities in my life (they were a little messed up) I know I am bound to mess up along the way, but hey God is there with through every step along with a great support system, so I think I will be just fine!!! SO, I need every one's help, please leave me suggestions on how to REFRESH my page...

In other news I have to once again profess my love for Ann Taylor Loft!!! Being as petite as I am, I cannot find clothes to fit me as well as theirs do... This weekend I shopped and got a few items for fall.... the bf was sweet enough to surprise me with a shopping trip. I also got a few basics from H&M another fabulous place!!! Anyways off to finishing class work...

The early days!
All dressed up!
I am really bad about taking photos lately so I don't have a recent one of us, but I promise to post one soon. SO as I prepare to transition back into school this fall, I listen to local Georgia artist, Corey Smith with my favorite line... "when the sun goes down in Georgia I'll be missing you".....and of course the famous lyrics from James Taylor
" And I'm going to Carolina in my mind" ......

Can anyone believe July is already here??? I feel like the summer is flying by. As of Monday the apartment, I was planning to live in this Fall in no longer available, so I am scrambling to find a new place as quickly as possible. Hoping that will work out soon enough. I have a new song that I am loving currently, I don't know if any of you enjoy country, but Lady Antebellum's tune "Our Kind of Love" is a great summer chill song, with sweet lyrics. Be sure to check it out!

The point of this award is to share ten things about yourself, pass this award onto ten bloggers who you recently discovered and think are fantastic and finally contact the bloggers to let them know you’ve picked them for an award.
soo ten things about me:
1. I am a girl who loves a bargain, though I lust for labels, finding them at a lower price makes me and my wallet a little bit happier.
2. I am an only child by birth, but over the past ten years I have gained a blended family, with 2 brothers and 2 sisters, whom I love. In addition this year, I gained 79 more sisters by joining a sorority, so much love in so little time.
3. I have passion for writing and travelling, it is what I have always loved, because of course life is a journey not a destination, and I am always along for the ride, but what many do not know is as much as I love to travel over the last year my home has become one of my favorite places, because after moving off to college I really realized you CAN go home!
4. I am not a neat freak by any means, but I do love things to match (most of the time) I try to be a free spirit and let the colors fall where they may, but neat and pressed is always best. My room however does not always carry to that saying, I can be quite unorganized at times.
5. Music is my refuge, as well as the beach, but I love every type of music, and I also love to dance, even though you won't be seeing me on Dancing With The Stars anytime soon, but jam sessions are great stress reliever.
6.I am super close with my mom, she is such a rock for me and she inspires me to be a better person. She exemplifies classy and is in every the southern lady, you often read about in books, my mother gave up so much for me to be where I am today and I often don't give her credit, but she is one of the greatest women i know!
7. I love football especially SEC football (Go Dawgs!), but most recently I have attached myself to the color purple seeing as though I am being pulled into the ACC conference thanks to a certain young man ( Go Tigers!), never thought I would hear that out of my mouth. Thanks Kev!
8. I love talking and I certainly like to speak my peace, though I try to do it in an appropriate manner, I often tell my best friend that whoever marries me will truly love me and my brutal honesty.
9. I have a passion for special needs children, one of brothers is hearing impaired and the close relationship we shared inspired me to reach out to others. More recently I have been involved with Autism Speaks.
10. Finally, as the tag line says, I am just a small town girl, but I am headed out into this extraordinary world to make my mark and hope to encourage others along the way.
Now I would like to send some love to others of you:

My first exciting purchase was this Tommy Hilfiger beach mat from Marshall's... precious!!! and it came in so many cute patterns.
My second was not me, :) but rather an adorable but simple beach bag, what I loved was the soft handle and cute little fasten on the front. I am standing in it to show how huge the bag is, yep I can stand in it, but for $10 dollars you can't go wrong
Well I will probably be taking a week off while on Vacation, but I will return shortly

I am obsessed with GLEE! Yes, I admit I am arts nerd and anything with music, I am pretty much a sucker for, but I love the twist they put on both current hits and past ones. If you haven't heard the music or watched the show, you are missing out. Recently on the finale they did a version of Journey's song , "Faithfully" amazing, you can listen to it here.
Have a good week!

What are your summer must-haves?
Friday, June 11, 2010
I own two Polo dresses; one carribean blue and the other magenta, both have stayed with me over the last couple years and within that time they have been quite a few miles. I love clothing,but I also the love the impressions left after the clothing has been worn. Recently upon putting on one of my dresses, I began to remember every memory that had been made in that dress. Beach trips, Senior pictures, girls nights, dates, so many moments that were iconic in my life transitioned into such an iconic piece of clothing. I know it might sound silly to think of clothing in such an aspect, but as great as new things are, the old always wear the best! So, as you slip into your summer wardrobe, do you have a piece that often brings you comfort or bears a good memory?
